Question about 1986 Nissan 300ZX
I have a 300zx and the transmission cooling line has rotted out of it and i cant find it online. Is there any solutions or alternative ways to fix it?
option # 1. I can give the name of a supplier who has used ones which will be in excellent condition and he's priced reasonably. I would bet money he has a set for your car.
The company name is "ALL Z's out of Ft.Worth Texas is a Z car salvage yard.. 817-438-4300" Jerry is the owner.
Option # 2: remove the lines and bring them to a shop which can duplicate your lines. YES! there are such places. Check with "O"Reilley's auto parts or AutoZone, it is possible one of their stores may even offer that service or will know someone in the area who does.
Option # 3.If I am not mistaken, the actual lines do not use a metric size end to thread into the transmission. It is a NPT standard. Most auto parts houses stock various size steel lines with fittings at both ends. "IF" you have a reasonable mechanical aptitude you can do the job. You can buy a cheap tubing bender
which you can use to duplicate the curves of the line you are trying to match. It is not quite as easy as it looks, so buy a shorter piece of the same sized tubing to practice on. The tubing isn't that costly.Just pull the line off and take it with you to the parts house to where they can see if they can put together a package of parts to make up each line because it does transition from steel to rubber.
So there you have it. I have used all three methods in my shop with success!

Maybe you can call them and find out for sure if these lines will work for you. In the mean time, I'll check other sources, but it's a start. I have always used them for difficult to find parts. Keep me posted. We'll find the right part for you. May take a few tries, but we'll get it.

Best bet would be to make a new line but be ready for some work. i had to do it on my pinto and it was a hella long job.
